What a Difference a Space Makes

I had a very interesting experience in my “RACing up the Miles” session this morning. There were about 70 people in the room, and I hope they enjoyed the session as much as I did. I discussed a wee bit of architecture about RAC and concentrated on a very basic beginner’s primer to management activities with srvctl and crsctl.

And They’re Off….

It’s day 2 of COLLABORATE, and I have no distractions like hockey to tend with today. I have seen a nice balance between new technology and the traditional offerings in the Oracle tech space. These user group shows, in some ways, are the bastion of the technologies which, as “old” as they may be, are still in use and of interest to many attendees.

Day 1 COLLABORATE12

Ah yes, the comfort of being around my second family: the user group and fellow Pythianites. I started my day with a BIG DATA session by Ian Abramson. I have heard quite a buzz about this topic for some time, and it’s getting louder. I always love to hear about the multi-terabyte data structures/databases as it reminds me of the first time I went from a 20Mb to a 40Mb hard disk on an 8086.

You Are Your Own Conference Committee

Whilst we all embark on this magical journey called “COLLABORATE”, keep in the back of your mind what this conference is all about. This event is driven by volunteers, 100% in their spare time, logging hundreds of hours altogether to make your experience as education-centric as possible. I started working conferences in the early 1990’s and have spent many years enjoying the fruits of my labor. It is a powerful way to spend your volunteer time-working alongside others with the single goal of making the event as worthwhile for the attendees as possible.

This is a quick blog post from Collaborate 2012 in Vegas. I’m only doing one session this year, but it’s a very long session — I’ve just done a deep dive on deploying Oracle Database 11gR2 for High Availability.

Elaborate on COLLABORATE

COLLABORATE is all about quality and content, presenters elaborating based on their specific areas(s) or expertise. The show may be elaborate, but “show” is secondary to education. A handful of tier 1 shows throughout the calendar year do just that. The primary focus is on the user community, the people who live the software from day-to-day.

Log Buffer #267, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

It feels like blogs appeared just yesterday. Over the years, they have proved to be of much value for the technical and not-so-technical masses. The big boom in this social media outlet has enabled an unprecedented sharing of ideas for database professionals. The nature of databases and blogging is to always change, but Log Buffers are here to stay.

The purpose of technology is to make life easier and more quality-oriented. It is this virtue of technology that makes it evergreen and sustainable. Its unique feature is its innovative nature.

DBD::Oracle v1.43_00 on CPAN — Now with 100% Less DBIS

A new trial version of DBD::Oracle is on CPAN. The meat of this release is the awesome work Martin Evans did in the murky core of the beast. He explains it better, but basically his magic results is a much faster DBD::Oracle on thread-enabled perls. This being said, the changes he did are significant (2.3K lines changed according to Git), and we would be very grateful for anybody finding the time to try and install that trial version before it goes live (which, unless something wrong is found, should be in 2 weeks).
